Thank you! Anything else to remember? --Benaresh (talk) 13:24, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Just the fact that you're most welcome to ask about anything, and that you pull up a goat and try to have some fun. (Oh, and reading this is helpful for everyone, methinks). Th hug.gif All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:35, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Thank you! i know that, as a guy who used to believe the Moon landing was a hoax, about Cognitive bias. I might not owe it to Rational wiki that i stopped believing that bullshit but RW helped me understand the true Face of GamerGate. So thanks to you all. --Benaresh (talk) 15:12, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Don't miss our articles on the Moon landing hoax, cognitive bias (or any of the three GamerGate articles, for that matter). And if Gators retort by pointing out that RW isn't neutral (which we aren't, though our opponents still LOVE to exaggerate and mis-describe what our bias is), don't miss out on WikipediaWikipedia's W.svg still agreeing fully with us on GamerGate being one big, spite-driven misogynist hoedown.

Also, I saw you mentioned "Milos whatshisname" in another post. ^^ We have an article on him as well. Don't miss it! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:03, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Scheiße! every Cracked-head i know is here. Thank you. I currently have 20+ Tabs open. I probably can't add much to Pegida nor AFD besides maybe a Opinion. But i think i can add constructivly in a week or so if i find the Newspaper Articles i've read online. --Benaresh (talk) 17:24, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Here's your first "inside tip" (Th hug.gif): people often use the term "crackhead" or (more commonly) "crackpot", but us skeptics like to use the word "crank" (yet another tab for you!). Speaking of us covering lots of cranks; we also have an article on the Reichsbürgerbewegung. Nuttier than squirrel shit, those guys. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:47, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
Hooh BOY! that Escalated quickly. (btw how do i add Pictures? this is going to be the new Theme of my Profile) We went from Populists(AFD) to the special kind ofCrank.
Hehe, I love Fawlty Towers. On a more serious note, however — while we do have an image uploading dialog here, it's very important to note that you can only upload images in a way that lets them be protected under Fair useWikipedia's W.svg. For the specific guidelines regarding images, see this guide from WikipediaWikipedia's W.svg. If I can suggest a different picture, this one is already uploaded, and is covered under free use! If you want to add it to your userpage, just paste the following there:

Hope this helps! All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:26, 3 December 2016 (UTC)

Angela Merkel calls for burka ban.[edit]

Being German, what's your take on this? Political posturing? Pandering to anti-Muslim bigotry and Islamophobia? Illiberal? The right move, albeit a little late? A bit of both and more?--Levi Ackerman (talk) 14:35, 6 December 2016 (UTC)


So there are plans to forbid the niqap and burka, as it isn't considered a legitimate part of, how we in Germany understand, Islam and it is a Symbol of non-integration and extremism. So it could be populistic or a way to appease the right wing of the CDU or genuine Security concerns. Edit NVW: i just saw her speech where she said it. Hmm yeah probably intended as a counter to the AFD like the Article describes. Strange didn't even make big News in Germany. --Benaresh (talk) 17:55, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

Did you read the one from the WP about "where are the Burqas?" weeellll no wonder nobody complained about merkel. It is smoke and mirrors to trick our "Patriots" ! Sweet. --Benaresh (talk) 10:01, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

"Thank you VOX Germany"[edit]

Does this mean there was a German "documentary" claiming the landings were a hoax? (I am was one of the few people here who gave a fuck about that particular CT.)--ZooGuard (talk) 11:05, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Yeah. Years ago when i saw a "Documentary" on this, heavily implying that the moon landing was a hoax, and the german astronaut that defended it came of as smug, so youn impressianable me came to the conclusion that it was for real. Shit like this was peddled almost 20 years before and similar insane stuff is still shown from time to time. EDIT:Here is an example about 9/11: Die-9-11-Verschwoerung-Was-wirklich-geschah if you do not speak german just look out for alex jones who got interviewed. while they do not claim that those conspiracy's are true they sensationalize them which doesn't really help. --Benaresh (talk) 00:26, 20 January 2017 (UTC)
